Earth Science Interactive PowerPoint Bundle!
This resource is part of the Earth Science (Entire) Curriculum
***Watch this quick preview video to see these Interactive PowerPoints in action!
(This is a fast motion screen capture of the resource).
These teaching resources are quite the virtual experience! The Earth Science PowerPoints can be used as powerful classroom presentations or students can click their way through them on individual computers.***However it should not be used in Google Slides, only the PowerPoint application.
This resource is aligned with Earth Science Interactive Notebook Bundle
I would highly recommend using this resource along with the PowerPoints but it is optional. The PowerPoints are a stand-alone resource.
